    House of Blues was the perfect setting for our wedding. Cali was very easy to work with. Once we gave her our budget and what we wanted, Cali worked her magic! Having the ceremony in the Voodoo Garden was a perfect start to the day, with ending the night in the Parish Room. Since the Voodoo Garden and the Parish Room are already decorated, we did not have the extra expense of flowers and decor.

    My wife and I recently got married in New Orleans, a destination wedding for ourselves and all of our guests. The venue we chose was the House of Blues and we couldn’t be happier with our decision.

    When we were first looking for venues in NOLA we wanted to go with some place in the French Quarter that was unique, fun, had a space large enough for up to 100 guests, had a great in-house chef (because we didn’t want to have to deal with an additional vendor), and was affordable. We ended up finding HOB on multiple wedding sites with great reviews.

    We reached out to get some more information and spoke with Britt, the sales coordinator there. Britt was really helpful in answering our questions and quickly responding to emails. Britt was able to connect us with the right people to get things moving.

    We ended up booking the Voodoo Garden for our ceremony and the Parish Room for our reception. From that point Jeanne took over helping us organize the initial plans of our event. Since we were doing everything from the other side of the country, we needed lots of assistance from HOB staff, and Jeanne was happy to take that role and made the process super smooth for us.

    A few months before the wedding we made a trip out to New Orleans to meet with some of our vendors, and we also met with Allie the Sales Manager while we were there. Allie was incredibly accommodating for us, and we left that meeting feeling great about our upcoming nuptials!

    We also started corresponding with Jen who was the Logistics Coordinator for our wedding.She went above-and-beyond for us, coordinating the event with us late one evening on a 2 hour phone call. She was even able to work with the chef there to make us a special beignet tower instead of a typical wedding cake.

    Thank you HOB for a great wedding. Cant wait to see you the next time we're down in the Crescent City!
